The ETF usually holds about 100 stocks, but currently 92 growth stocks make up its portfolio. Consumer discretionary and industrial growth stocks are the top sectors. This is also one of the best ETFs because it re-balances quarterly, meaning the RFG definitely doesn’t take a passive approach to stock selection.
